‘Her Race’ by Kachusha Nkosha

As hard, as the rock hit by moses’ rod,
So is our warrior.
She works up wondering,
What will work today?

Stop! This is not for women!
You are not the first one,
They tried and failed,
Imagine the president going on maternity leave?

A thought of it can cause birds to collide;
She hears them whisper.
All she wants, is equal representation,
Her feminine voice to  echo in men’s world.

She moves confidently,
With a hope of a better tomorrow.
She has succeeded in policies
That enable equal participation,

Numbers of female engineers have increased, more girls are in school,
Pregnant girls have access to education too.
Yet, she won’t rest until she sees more female presidents.
She is a woman advocate! She is everything!
